Go here to see if you qualify.

Food Lion Holiday Tickets promo is back (collect 6 of 8)

Food Lion runs these holiday programs in the fall and spring and it's a great way to help offset the huge cost of a holiday meal.  Considering the cost of a thanksgiving meal was nearly $50 last year, getting a $20 coupon to help pay for the fixings is a great help to families.

How the Shop, Collect, Earn holiday $20 coupon program works:
  • Shop 6 of 8 weeks and spend at least $40 to earn the ticket.  The $40 does not include typical things like gift cards, alcohol, lottery, tobacco, stamps, and services like Western Union.
  • Keep your tickets in a safe place (I can't tell you how many I misplaced!) and save them up until you have at least 6 to be able to claim your ticket.  The last time I claimed, this was able to be done at the register versus the service desk.  
  • In order to have the ticket generated at the catalina machine, you will need to ensure that your purchases are done between 10/1 and 11/25.  If you do not receive a catalina, ask for it before you leave the store.  Sometimes things happen!  But stay and ask them to get you a ticket generated.
  • You will have until 12/9 to redeem your tickets for the $20 coupon.
  • The $20 coupon expires on 12/16.

Homeschoolers can join Pizza Hut's 'Book It!" program -- still enrolling!

Did you know that homeschooling families can sign up for Pizza  Hut's Book It program?  I was able to sign up today and got a confirmation email.  Here's the rundown on the program.  You'll need to check some boxes to complete your registration.  It's a month past the typical deadline of 9/1, BUT you can still apply.  They just have the right to accept applications on a first come, first served basis.  There's still room for regular teachers to apply too.

You must certify that:
  • Your child is K-6
  • Is between ages of 5-12 as of September 1
  • The Book It certificates will only be used to motivate reading
  • That you won't trade, transfer, sell, copy, alter, or purchase these certificates. 
  • One order per household.
  • Each individual family must apply -- no longer accepting homeschool groups/co-ops.
I received an email right away letting me know that the materials would mail soon.  This is their 30th year for the program.

National Prescription Drug Take Back Day ~~ September 27, 2014

This Saturday, September 27, 2014, is National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.

Do you have unwanted/expired prescription drugs?  That root canal last year might have left you with some pain pills or antibiotics that you don't need.  You don't feel comfortable putting them in the trash or flushing them for environmental reasons.  

You forget about them, but someone pawing through your medicine cupboard knows just what they're looking for in there.  I have read countless stories of family members unaware that their teens or other guests were helping themselves to long-forgotten Vicodin or other drugs.  I have even had friends tell me about guests in their home that they heard going through their medicine cabinet (BTW, the bathroom is the worst place to store medicine!). 

If you don't need them now, don't keep those old rx's hanging around.  Turn them in at one of these events (image above will take you to a site where you can punch in your zip and find the closest participating police station/acceptance point.)

Double #walmartsavingscatcher rewards with BlueBird card

If you've already joined the ranks of Walmart shoppers who have signed up for the Walmart Savings Catcher rewards program, you probably have a few bucks earned back from your purchases.  But what if you could double that? 

You might have noticed Bluebird cards hanging out in every nook and cranny in Walmarts in the past year or so.  These are American Express cards that act like a checking account of sorts (though they are clear on their website that it is NOT a bank.)  Check out Bluebird here.

Where the tie in between the programs occurs is that if you have a Bluebird card, you can redeem your Walmart Savings Catcher earnings to your Bluebird card.  From now until February 28, 2015, you can redeem your Savings Catcher money to your Bluebird card as Walmart Buck$.  These Walmart Buck$ can only be used at Walmart, at not at Sam's Club or any other retailers (McD, hair cutting places, etc. that have tenancy in a Walmart building). 

You redeem them by paying with your Bluebird card at checkout. There is also a limit of $599.99 per calendar year for double bucks program monies, so you will want to keep that in mind if you are a hard and heavy shopper/saver wanting to transfer money over.

That said, if you're open to opening a Bluebird account and you have a lot of Savings Catcher Rewards, it's a great way to double your money in time for holiday shopping.
